330 mL bottle tried 15 Mar 2011. Courtesy of jk who picked it up in Oman, thanks! Served in the 0.4 L Hutthurmer mug.

Large white head. Well carbonated. Clear dark golden yellow in color. Aroma is primarily skunk with some mineral and sweet grain in the background. Fairly sweet to start. Thankfully the skunkiness is not nearly as present in the flavor. Slight graininess. Light effervescent body, minimal ethanol. Slight hint of lemon and mineral water in the finish. Aftertaste is a very faint bitterness.

I would drink this if I was in Lebanon. And could get it unskunked.

12 oz bottle at Lebanese restaurant, West Chester OH. Pours deep golden with a long lasting white head and some lacing. Nose is of hay and some biscuit malt. Body is medium, crisp. Taste is grassy hops, and sweet biscuit malt. Finish is long and clean. Better than American macro, I could drink a second bottle.

my first beer from the middle east, i think. enjoyed at house of kebob on colorado boulevard. pours darker than most of these light pilsners, sort of brassy in color, almost no head. beer looks almost flat in the glass. smell is some light middle of the road rather neutral malts, and balanced out bittering hops only, maybe kent goldings or something low key. flavor is similarly basic, but none of that gross adjuncty taste the american versions all have. my girlfriend actually really enjoyed this beer. i thought it worked well with my lamb kebobs and hummus. feel was weak, i have to subtract for the lack of carbonation, just totally absent, but i also have to add back on because it actually did have some body, which is welcomed here. overall im glad i tried this, but its nothing special.

*Review taken from notes*

A: Very pale yellow with bubbles. No head.

S: Like a light pils. Some wheat here -- some fruit there. Aroma very unorganized.

T: Light. Airy. Some sweetness in the background. Some fruit flavors. Taste like the best Miller Lite ever.

M: Light body -- very little carbonation.

O: No real flavor. Beer doesn't really stand out. Nice to have at a Greek restaurant, but would never purchase off the shelf. Value-less beer.
